Millionaire Mojito with Fresh Pomegranate juice

The pomegranate which is sometimes referred to as the fruit of Paradise contains a high amount of antioxidants that are beneficial to our health in many ways.The seeds and juice are considered a tonic for the heart and throat.It is a very good source of vitamin B5 /pantothenic acid, potassium  and polyphenols, such as tannins and flavonoids.
Tommy Bahama White Sand is labeled as a delightful ultra-premium light-bodied rum with a smooth entry and clean finish with hints of tangy, tropical fruit and spice.The 80-proof rum is made from water slow-filtered through coral stone, Caribbean blackstrap molasses and yeast imported from South Africa, and then aged in small batches in oak barrels. White Sand ages for a minimum of two years .

A Mojito mixed with Tommy Bahama rum is referred to as Millionaire Mojito. I have added some fresh Pomegranate juice to make a Pomegranate flavored Millionaire Mojito.
